Kids vaccinations

Medsana Medical Clinic caters to the specific needs of children to ensure coming to the doctor is a happy and stress-free experience. We have a dedicated kid’s fun waiting area and friendly kid’s vaccination room.

We also provide vaccinations for older children who may not want to have them done at school. Childhood vaccinations under the Qld Immunisation Schedule are bulk billed at our clinic.

We also provide other vaccines outside the Qld Immunisation Schedule, Meningococcal B/ACWY and travel vaccines.

Low Sensory Environment

Medsana Medical Clinic can turn down the music and dim the lights in the waiting room to improve your child’s health care experience.  If there is adequate sunlight coming through the consulting room windows, we can turn off these lights too.  Please speak to reception for further details.

Common problems children may experience – eczema, allergies, sleeping, behaviour

Our health professionals are experienced and enjoy working with all aspects of child health.

We can develop Action Plans to help you:

  • Better manage your allergies, eczema or asthma. 
  • Show you how to use the devices/puffers. 
  • Provide additional resources and education. 
  • Collaborate with your allergist and administer desensitisation injections if required.

Our dietitian can assist you through the process of elimination and allergy diets for kids and breastfeeding mothers.
